in cairo to discuss putting an end to the bloodshed. egyptian president mohamud morsi is overseeing the talks and he has become the central figure in the delicate negotiations. morsi was at his sister's funeral today but he did issue a statement saying israeli aggression would end today. tuesday. at the end of the day the two sides still had not reached agreement. a hamas official told reuters they had come close but the talks "must wait until tomorrow." now this is morsi's real debut on the world stage. he rose from his position as head of the engineering department at a cairo university to become president of egypt last year. it's really an intriguing story. morsi replaced, as you know, president hosni mubarak who had been in power for three decades and was one of israel's few allies in the region and morsi ran as the muslim brotherhood's candidate and he promised to implement islamic law. but analysts say that he's not really a true religious fundamentalist. that he had to adopt those positions to fend off competition from islamist extremists. and his background does seem to sugg

you guys out there say to your right-wing coworkers always say why was our embassy in cairo attacked earlier that day. it was specifically where our embassy was stormed and the u.s. flag was torn down and an islamist flag was put in its place, and that's because an us -- islamic radio show host talked about the movie and caused these riots all over the middle east. it's the hypocrisy stupid. on september 11th, 2001 we were attacked by terrorists, and we told united we stand, rally behind our commander in chief during wartime. in 2012, an attack happens overseas, four americans are killed and we are told the president is to blame, and it is being exploited again. in 2012 a ter rick attack is exploited for cheap political points. if any democrat had tried to smear bush over 9/11, which we were warned about, but they would have lost their job forever, and yet nowadays it's open season. we want to know your thoughts at 866-55-press. pat is joining us from kansas missouri. good morning, >> caller: good morning, john how are you today? >> john: i'm better now. >> caller: my statement is in

this attack. when you look at the ongoing negotiations in had cairo with the turks and egyptians and other regional states trying to broker a cease-fire agreement. it's hamas setting up the dinner table. it's not israel authorities. whatever its defensive rationale, and i support israel's right to defend itself, it's radicalizing the posturing. you see unite around hamas this is not good for u.s. policy in the region. >> eliot: we have this mundane but nets question who is winning, and win something hard to define but joe you gave one interpretation, who is being elevated, who is gaining negotiating leverage in the long run. do you agree that hamas is gaining ground in this? >> yes, but they gain ground in the weirdest way. hamas does not succeed by causing more pain to israel. it's the opposite. it succeed by forcing israel to behave in such a way that hundreds of civilians or dozens of civilians are killed. hamas is not inflicting damage on israel as you pointed out in your statement. the iron dome defense system has largely spared israel from harm. israel succeed by harming hamas.

a resolution along with egyptian negotiators in cairo. hamas is saying that israel can stop the fighting simply by agreeing to hamas' demands. they're claiming israel is begging for a truce. a claim that israel vehemently denies. in other lighter news this morning, let's turn back to u.s. political news where representative alan west is still buried in denial. he won his bid for a recount of early ballots in st. lucie county but he is still losing when it comes to keeping his congressional seat in florida's district 18. in fact, democratic patrick murphy picked up some 300 more votes over the weekend bringing his total to about 2,000. west is still refusing to concede the election saying that he plans to review the result and additional data in order to decide how to move forward. murphy has claimed victory and it is very clear that west is probably all done. we're back with more steph after the break. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off b

officers they were reacting to the protests in cairo which were directly triggered by that video. now, there was more to it than that. but at the time, what they reported was exactly what they were told by protestors on the scene. that was not a lie. that was what they were told. they were the intelligence reports from the c.i.a. okay? >> wasn't that a talking point from the c.i.a.? >> bill: no, they weren't talking points from the c.i.a. didn't you hear me? they were intelligence reports from the field. now, look, they turned out to be not totally accurate. there was more to it than that at the time, that's what they were told. that is no comparison to the lie that mitt romney is telling that g.m. and chrysler, dude, have come out and said are total lies. >> they seem to be corroborating the lie. >> bill: who? >> the companies. >> bill: hey doug, get the hell out of here. >> see ya later doug. >> bill: have a cup of coffee. wake up. they're not corroborating the lie. they are calling it out! they're calling mitt romney a liar. don't you get it? g.m. and chrysler said there's no

for the unwatchful film, innocence of muslims. of course, i'm talking about our embassy in cairo egypt. local tv host had played this clip incessantly and raging muslims -- enraging muslims throughout egypt who stormed our embassy and tore down the american flag and put up an islamist flag. a few hours later the -- they said it was over the video even though the next day the president referred to it as an act of terror. four americans were killed including our ambassador. ever since then, our republican friends have been using this terror attack, i'm sorry did i say using? i meant exploiting this terror attack to smear the president in any way they can. as you know, in 9-11-01 a terror attack is a reason to unite and cheer a president and in 9-11-12, it is an excuse to smear a president. there have been rumors of course that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with joh
